Yala hospital receives Sh1.5 medical boost

The state of healthcare in Siaya has received a boost following a Sh1.5 million worth of medical equipment donation from gaming firm Mozzart to the Yala Sub County hospital.

The equipment includes hospital beds, bedside lockers, maternity delivery beds, patient monitors, oxygen concentrators, oxygen flow meters, and infant incubators.

At hand to officially receive the equipment was Hon Dismas Odhiambo, the Siaya County Executive for Health.

“I get treated at this facility because I believe in the capability of the staff here. Every piece of equipment given to this hospital shall be put to good use to improve service delivery so that every patient that comes in here leaves as a better person,” he said.

Cyprian Aluda, Mozzart’s CSR representative reiterated the company’s commitment to supporting communities across the country. He said: “We are very happy to be in Yala to give this donation of medical equipment. We have done this across the country from November last year and we are not about to stop as more hospitals have been aligned to receive more donations in the coming weeks.

Other hospitals that have benefited from donations in the recent past include Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital, Pumwani Maternity Hospital, Ngara Health Centre, Chemolingot Sub County Hospital, Mathare North Health Centre, Kahawa West Health Centre, plus Kayole 1 Health Centre, and Kayole 2 Sub County Hospital.

Mozzart, which sponsors Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League side Kakamega Homeboyz, is also expected to commission a third borehole on Friday 19th February in Bomet.
